Nike Covert Series

15 posts in this topic

I am thinking about getting the Nike Covert irons, driver, and a hybrid.  I was curious to see if anyone has played them this year (especially the irons) and can give me any feedback.  I am also curious to know if there if a difference between the "performance"  driver (white face) and the "tour" (black face) drivers.

Thanks!

I can't answer the iron question.  But I can answer the driver question.

The Tour is a smaller head club and comes with a Kuro Kage Black instead of the regular which is a Kuro Kage Silver with a 460 head. I have the regular and really like the club.  I had a Cleveland DST and Callaway FTiQ prior to this and this club is lower spinning than both, and the adjustable loft gives me the ability to dial in the ball flight height.

The net result is that with the Nike set to 10.5 degrees and in the closed position, I carry the drives as long as the Cleveland, which was a 1" longer club.  Because the Nike is shorter I hit the center of the face that much more often.

Have you been able to swing any clubs yet?

I was able to swing both the VRS and this year's COVERT 6i yesterday.  Despite the rave reviews on both I didn't care much for the feel at impact.  Something just didn't feel right.

Then I decided to try the AP1 6i... swooooooonnn   But I'm happy with my pro cavities for now

Im in love with the Covert line.  Even if the technology really doesnt do anything special, it just looks so cool!

Funny this popped up, I was just looking for a forum on this!

I've just bought the Covert VR_s driver after testing 6-7 clubs and can tell you it's absolutely transformed my driving! I took it out for the first time last night and literally (apart from 1), missiled it down the fairway.

It's been a weak point of my game for a while and I'm really pleased that I can replicate the form on the course that I had in the testing session. Especially happy as I've got my first club competition on sunday.

Ultimately it depends on what driver you using at the moment as to the difference you'll see. I was using an old Yonex V-Mass with a 9 Degree loft, which was passed on to me and picked up the 10.5 degree VR_s (non-tour). I would highly recommend it and it also installs confidence with it's fantastic looks at address.

The covert dropped the spin rate for me a lot. I also hit this a lot better over my old 910 and when I tested the 913. Same for the 3 wood. The covert hybrid is my first hybrid so I can't really compare it to anything.

Ive been watching them on Ebay and it seems like they are going for about $150 new right now.  I may pick one up this winter if the price is right.

Thanks for the info.  With the prices dropping on the entire line it makes them more tempting.  I just didn't want to go out and spend a ton of money on hype.

Try Global Golf or Callaway preowned.  Global Golf is an authorized dealer and does have a great selection of new and used clubs.  You might save some bucks and get a mint condition driver in the specs you're looking for.

    • XE1 Wedge: Have you tried it?
      It may be great but at what cost?  Not willing to lose my dignity to possibly save a shot or two.  Plus I love my jaws wedges with the md grooves. Straight ?. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Well said Mr.  Desmond the funny thing in all this is that somehow poor people support Trump against their own best interest. And call bernie a communist despite not really knowing what that or socialism is or the difference between the two. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Bernie says the system is rigged - stats since the 1980's prove that a great amount of wealth has shifted towards a very small percentage of people. Does that not concern you?  Walmart employs people with such small wages that their people are on welfare, so the argument goes that Walmart is a huge beneficiary of living off the government tit. As to Bernie's war against financial institutions, can you doubt that Wall St helped out the 2007 Depression? Completely irresponsible behavior based on greed. Hedge fund managers get capital gains rate on their compensation? Ridiculous. How many people do you know make over $10M on ordinary income? That is where he proposes a 52% tax that become 73% when one adds SS and Single Payer taxes, and then you have the state income tax, so it would get high. And it is too high, but he would not get that through Congress unless we truly had a revolution and all the Dems came out to vote for the revolution. If all Dems vote, Pubs lose except in areas so gerryrmandered that the one party it favors will always win. Bernie on guns? He won't take away guns, it's not in his record. Bernie is not snake oil -- Bernie and Trump are here because of the last 30 years of growing inequity, political correctness and divisiveness. If we do not address it with traditional politics, then eventually people will wake up and vote their interests, which would be Sanders  or a similar politician. It is time for change, the last 30 years have been tough on all levels of the lower and middle classes while the upper class have the "let them eat cake" attitude. That only takes one so far before people vote for big change. I asked a 20 something the other night who she likes, Trump, Cruz, Sanders, Clinton - I said Clinton would work with the other side, Bernie wants a pipedream - she said "I want Bernie." I just said if you want Bernie, you better get out the vote because it will take a lot of young people to do it. Before I am "labeled" again, I don't think any candidates in either party are to my liking. But I think we do need incremental change ... now to reverse some of the last 30 years and renew the American Dream -- it should be for all, not 1%.
    • Anyone enjoying the drink tonight?
      Hopslam last night, just released by Bells.  Best beer in a can, which used to only be in a bottle.  
    • How do I organize a charity tournament to be a raging success?
      Try and get individuals to contribute.  If you have a hundred golfers each contributing a hundred dollars, that is 10,000$.  Easier sometimes than convincing a business to contribute say 5,000$.  The second thing is make it a fun family day with some events post the round.  Your spouse and kids will enjoy the day and you are more likely to spend some money.  Say a stall selling small knick-knacks or stuff for kids etc. Sad that you can get a stroke at 26, but why can't they figure out what is wrong with her anyway
